Few things bring more immediate scrutiny and impassioned angst among young adult Christians today than hearing the words "purity culture." Serious flaws from purity culture deserve to be scrutinized, especially given its lasting negative effects on some raised in the movement. Many Christians today reject the movement—and all that it stood for—wholesale. However, we can’t ignore the clear sexual ethics of the Bible. Join us to see the big picture of God’s design for men and women regarding sexuality and learn to reclaim one of the clearest teachings in the scriptures: the call to sexual purity. While purity culture gets the truth right, the approach and gospel elements it espouses are often wrong. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater, but rather celebrate God’s great design for marriage and the loving boundaries he has put in place for our joy, protection, and flourishing.
